Historic Sites of Manitoba: Archambault Park (224 Rutledge Crescent, Winnipeg)

The Harbour View South Optimists Park, also known as Harbour View South Park, was created in June 1989. In 2007, the park facilities were improved and rededicated at a ceremony on 25 June 2007. In June 2011, the park was renamed for realtors and community activists Geoff and Regan Archambault. They lived in the Harbour View South community for 14 years and donated towards improvements to the community park.
